It decided to publish some of them and thus by using pictures that talk and inspire children’s imagination to penetrate the very body of the fable as an instructive short tale with animals having human characteristics. Thereby the virtues of fables would be best depicted and the reader could speculate about who we are and what are our dispositions.
